Mandala Desa is a great place to stay. A luxurious en quiet resort near Ubud, with a beautiful view over the rice fields. Very friendly staff who makes you feel at home, delicious meals (especially the Indonesian dishes, but also continental meals are available), home made and fresh products from their own garden. A perfect place to start many daytrips.... More

We booked to stay at Mandala Desa for 2 nights but came back for another 3 because it was such a great experience! The accommodation and facilities are beautiful and well maintain. The setting is tranquil and a refreshing retreat from the crowds in Ubud and general noise that one experiences in Bali. We loved staying away for the crowds... More

Had an amazing two-night stay at Mandala Desa! I would definitely recommend this place if you’re looking for a quiet and relaxing getaway in the village areas, where you can really see the everyday lives of the locals. Ubud central is about a twenty minute drive away but still convenient to get to with the complimentary shuttle services provided by... More

We stayed in Mandala Desa for 2 nights, on the second floor (thanks to other reviewers' advice). It's exactly what we wanted, a simple place that is quiet, laid back and with great service. Mandala Desa is situated in a town/village twenty minutes away from Ubud. Some may see the distance away from Ubud as a negative but I think... More

We stayed at Mandala Desa for a week in May. It was peaceful and wonderful! I liked being away from the craziness of Ubud. The service of the staff and the helpfulness of the owner, Jacinta, were exceptional, always warm, cheerful and efficient. We stayed in one of the beautiful, spacious and clean villas. I loved the outdoor tub and... More

We spent two lovely nights there. After following the signs to the discrete location, getting lost in the streets, taking a small dirt road we finally pass the front door to have a glimpse at a little piece of Eden. Beautiful flowery paths line the fairways and the lovely pool thrilled the exhausted travelers that we were. Of Indonesian inspiration,... More

We enjoyed a wonderful stay in this beautiful hotel just outside the touristic (and crowded) centre of Ubud. This boutique hotel is very well situated every room has a spectaculair view on the surrounding rice fields. Although this is a small hotel, you find here the luxury of a five star hotel. The breakfast served on your own private terrace... More

Mandala Desa is a beautiful place - it is located a few miles from Ubud. Ubud is a nice place but already quite crowdy. Mandala Desa offers a lovely, peaceful and relaxing place with very welcoming staff and owner - we really felt like we were home after we came back from a visit to Ubud or other areas. They... More
